Discuss all Rugby Union topics here, from the Guinness Premiership to The Tri Nations.

Edited: Talk about the Rugby World Cup as well.

Can't see England winning, might get lucky with a 2nd place though.

^ That's how i see the final standings as well, according to some sites i've seen England are favorites, but the team to beat for me is France, they've got a good squad and we always struggle against them.

Should be good this year. I think Ireland have a good enough chance to win.

Personally can see Ireland or France winning it, still rooting for Wales though.

They've been overhyping England lately i feel there gonna crash and burn.

That really was shite defence by Wales.

England have three games at home after this one, so winning the opener at Wales is a big result considering. Wales were really, really poor imo, surprised they managed to finish as close to England as they did, struggling to think how they got 19 points :s .

We've been on the down ever since we won the last six nations, we keep living on past glories.

As much as I hate to say it, I reckon France will do their whole "Suck for three years and peak on World Cup year" routine and win the Six Nations. At least later on this year, we face them in the pools and not get knocked out by them when it *censored*ing matters like last time. I hope I'm wrong, though.

:offtopic: And is it just me, or are Six Nations games boring as hell compared to Tri Nations games? They seem like a whole lot more kicking and a whole lot less running.

This has been a real good game, the error the French bloke made at the start of the half that gifted England the territory right in front of the try line was hilarious.

And Johnny has become the all time leading international point scorer with his penalty today, quite a feat.

Ireland were great today, just a pity we couldn't play like that against the others, we'd probably be in contention for the Grand Slam if we had.

If we play like that in the World Cup, we should do well. Maybe semis.

Anyway, I think this should be changed to the "Official Rugby Union Topic" instead of having to start one up again in a couple of months when the World Cup is on. Plus there'll be somewhere to discuss the Leagues and Cups.
